TUSK – SACRIFICE (FST004)

‘Sacrifice’ is an epic space opera threaded through the rising drones and beats of 1980s and 90s synthdance.
Armed with haunting vocals and synth melodies, TUSK is a dance floor renegade with beats fit for the runway and an escapist sci-fi fantasy bringing, love, sex and desire to the outer limits of this cold universe.

Fusing together a disco rave swagger with the dark arts of a black magic, ‘Sacrifice’ inhabits the nexus point between Xiu Xiu, John Foxx and Kate Bush. The hooks are indelible; the dislocated melodies and beats blast across the spectrum from acid house to future pop, new-wave to rave. ‘Sacrifice’ is danceable music for an age staring into the apocalypse, synths married with science fiction; lipstick shine under blacklights.

V – V (FST002)

Breathlessly dark, strangely uplifting debut album from V.

With a voice like the later Marianne Faithfull, Berlin’s priestess of dark-pop rings out bass lines that belie her grunge and punk roots. With broken beats and rich layers of synths by TUSK.
